    Default S/W RAID clean, degraded

    Hi there,
    I'm facing this problem now on an 8x2 TB RAID 5 array. The system seems to work fine and the data is still there, apparently. Despite that, when selecting RAID => S/W RAID => Unit MD0 from the web GUI, in the "Function: Info" frame, it reads "state: clean, degraded". Also, when going back to the "S/W RAID units" menu, unit S6 says "available", while the other 7 units are "in use, Unit MD0". How do I revert it back to the normal operating status?
    I have also read this:
    but it refers to another version of Open-E, and I'm not willing to try without knowing what I'm doing, and thus possibly destroy the data.

    Please help me out before it fails completely.

    The data needs to be backed up, and the drive re-added to the array and rebuilt, as stated in the KB article.
